This week Sue T returns to the Climb Like A Girl Blog to tell us about a great opportunity for those looking to climb abroad – and maybe don’t know where to start.
Hey Ladies!!! Just sharing a great opportunity to climb in Europe with the guiding group Rockbusters. I’ve been on 3 of their trips (Czech Republic, Germany, and Spain), and I’m headed back this summer for more. Beautiful locations, incredible climbing, and great coaching. They even have a trip this spring with Adam Ondra doing some workshops!!! Even better, there are ladies only trips throughout the year, some of them coached by Daila Ojeda: WOW. ZA. The trips are affordable (there are always deals coming up on their site), there is ZERO ego, and you will leave climbing stronger than when you started 🙂

A couple of questions you may have:
Q. I just started climbing, or I’ve never climbed outdoors. Is this trip right for me?
A. Yup. Beginners are really successful on these trips! You can get as much or as little guidance as you want. During my Spain trip someone who had never climbed outside learned how to lead!
Q. I climb harder stuff. Will I get on some hard things?
A. Yes. Go on with your bad self. You will be challenged.
Q.Will I smell like armpits because I won’t be able to shower?
A. I was able to shower and clean my tits, pits, and girlie bits everday on the three parts of the trip I was on. Another gal I met did the Italy trip and I heard that she bathed in an Italian river (amazing) which I was disappointed to hear is not, in fact, made from gelato. She absolutely loved it.
Q. I hate sleeping in tents. Any other options?
A. On some legs you will to sleep in fart domes (tents) but on some trips there are other options. In the Czech Republic we stayed in a house. I shared a room with 2 amazing gals and a hot Frenchman (tres delicieux) but there were 10 of us on this tour total. In Spain 7 climbers shared an entire refuge. Wine EVERY night.
Good safe climbing fun! I highly recommend climbing with Rockbusters! If you want any more advice or info DM me on IG @bushwhacker_sue or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
